The much-awaited grand finale of the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League finally concluded with a nail-biting finish on Monday. It had many twists and turns, but in the end, it was MS Dhoni and his men that pulled off an incredible win to clinch their fifth IPL title.
The game saw a number of incredible moments, and the game went towards both sides. It was full of emotions, and the love and support that MS Dhoni got throughout the season was just immense. The support of the fans was the highlight of the tournament.
Not just at Chepauk Stadium, the sea of yellow was everywhere, even in away games for Chennai Super Kings. The prime reason was the captain cool. Some media reports confirmed that this might be the last season for Dhoni, which is why fans gathered in large numbers to say farewell to the captain.
Even in the final, a huge number of MS Dhoni and CSK’s supporters were present at the ground. And when Chennai won their fifth IPL title, it brought many emotions from everyone, including MSD. CSK needed a boundary to win off the last ball of the over.
However, when Jadeja hit the last ball for a four, the camera was pointed at MS Dhoni, who was sitting in the dugout. It looked like he didn’t see the last ball, and he closed his eyes and was seen praying. However, in reality, it was a glitch, and it stopped at that point due to a broadcast problem.
Jadeja smashed a six and a boundary off the last two balls to help CSK win their fifth IPL title. With this win, CSK has equaled MI’s tally of five IPL titles and is now the most successful team in the history of the league. Notably, after the game, Dhoni said that he would try hard to come back next season for the fans.
